The region is expected to have an average economic annual growth of 7.9 percent through to 2030, according to Asian Development Bank Institute.
Pacnet said its service expansion will assure organisation of a “secure, extensive private network that can reduce network management complexity, while enhancing operational efficiency and performance.”

“The Greater Mekong Subregion is an exciting area of economic growth for Asia-Pacific. A growing number of companies are seeking to establish a footprint within this region. But … they need to know that the appropriate infrastructure and services are there to assist them, he said.
Nayak said integrating these additional locations with the company’s subsea cable infrastructure, Pacnet can address the growing network demand of its customers.
